Meg Hillier MP, Labour's Shadow Energy and Climate Change Secretary, commenting on the committee on climate change’s report released today, said:
“It is increasingly clear that David Cameron’s Tory-led Government lacks a plan to meet our climate change targets and create new jobs in low carbon industries. As the CCC report proves, there has been little action in the last year.
“Ministers have rejected Labour’s attempts to beef up the energy bill; Britain could have led the world on green design and technology. Instead, at a time when the Government should be putting jobs first, Britain is slipping behind on low carbon jobs and manufacturing, and the chances of meeting our international obligations on climate change look ever-more remote. It’s been a wasted year under the Conservative-led Government.”
